Community

Keeping IT real.

Giving it back and keeping IT real.

Being in the people business provides us with a sense of responsibility to the community around us, and affords us a unique opportunity to contribute to the causes we believe in. Big hearts equals big actions, and we have implemented a series of charitable programs that we actively foster and support.

CircuIT donates to charity $200 of each permanent placement fee that is received from a client. The client can choose from a CircuIT partnered charity to direct the $200 donation to. Our partnered charities are:

  • RSPCA
  • Save the Children
  • The Difference
  • JRS Australia

More than just talk, we back it up with tangible actions. IT stands to reason.

The RSPCA

The RSPCA is a non-government community based animal welfare charity with a rich and proud history dating back to 1870. The organisation was created by the community and driven by strong local support. Without public backing the RSPCA would cease to function and without the services of the RSPCA the future for thousands of animals would look very bleak indeed.  Last year alone RSPCA Victoria provided care to over 40,000 animals and our inspectors investigated over 14, 400 animal cruelty complaints.

Vision - the Five Freedoms

That all animals, great and small, are:

  • Free from hunger and thirst.
  • Free from discomfort.
  • Free from pain, injury and disease.
  • Free to express normal behaviour.
  • Free from fear and distress.

Objectives

The primary objectives of the RSPCA are the prevention of cruelty to animals and 
animal rehabilitation by:

  • Educating the community regarding the humane treatment and management of animals, and increasing public awareness of and support of animal welfare;
  • Enforcing the existing laws to prevent cruelty to animals;
  • Influencing the amendment or development of legislation and standards considered necessary for the protection and welfare of animals;
  • Encouraging and providing a sustainable, needs based network of animal welfare services across the State, for the care, shelter, treatment, rehabilitation, and protection of animals within the capacity and strategic directions of the organisation;
  • Providing relief programs to assist people within the community who are experiencing adverse circumstances, to enable them to care for or manage their animals.

Save the Children

Save the Children, established more than 90 years ago is now a global movement that is made up of 29 member countries and delivers programs in over 120 countries. As the world’s leading independent children’s rights organisation in the world we make a difference to the most vulnerable children. We save the lives of millions of children each year and a give a better chance at life to many more.

Sadly in Australia nearly 12 per cent of children fall below the poverty line. Despite Australia's wealth and high standard of living, many children struggle to reach their potential because they don’t have access to education, healthcare and protection services. We employ, develop and run programs for disadvantaged, isolated and vulnerable Australian children in more than 100 communities throughout the country.

What we do?

  • We provide humanitarian response in times of crisis, alongside conducting long term development programs designed to sustainably help every child. Our main areas of work are:
  • Child Protection – we work with vulnerable children and their mothers who have been subjected to domestic violence.
  • Emergency response- recently we have responded to the following disasters: Haiti earthquake, Pakistan floods, the Queensland and Victorian floods, Cyclone Yasi, the Japan disaster and many more.
  • Health & Nutrition- a global initiative has been launched called ‘Everyone’ which will focus on reducing the number of number of children who die needlessly before their 5th birthday due to preventable illness.
  • Education-  in Australia we specialise in early childhood development and aim to give every child the right start in life through mobile play schemes and early learning centres.
  • The programs we deliver and the help we provide is given without fear or favour, religion, creed or political agenda. Our support and development work is given on the basis of need alone.

The Difference

The Difference is a publication designed to help all Australians make a difference to the lives of our nation’s most disadvantaged— while at the same time enriching us all.

Issue 1 of The Difference was launched on March 22nd 2011 by Simon McKeon, 2011 Australian of the Year and has received extensive media coverage and feedback as an important research and investment tool for all Australians.

It is an annual Australian report card on the indicators of disadvantage, poverty and exclusion, underpinned by research by Access Economics.

The research shows we are becoming less inclusive as a society — going backwards on indicators like child abuse and neglect, suicide, rates of reimprisonment, homelessness, public housing waiting lists and credit default.

Clearly government alone cannot fix the problems — responsibility also lies with us. The Difference introduces you to real people behind the statistics, and projects that will have an immediate impact on their lives. These projects are led by charities with reputation, capacity and a track record of success.

The goal of The Difference is to bring the issues, people and solutions together to create opportunities for people and corporations to assist.

By inviting more people to get involved and linking social investors to prevention projects, we hope to see the indicators improve over time.

The Difference's five year strategic plan includes increasing the culture and effectiveness of giving within Australia as well as publishing state based versions and extending The Difference to Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia.

Winter Ball Sponsor of JRS Australia

CircuIT are proud sponsors of the JRS Winter Ball which is held each year to raise awareness and funds to support their cause.

The Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) is an international organisation with a mission to accompany, serve and defend the rights of refugees and forcibly displaced people. JRS undertakes services at national and regional levels with the support of an international office in Rome, Italy. JRS Australia was initiated by the Australian consortium, as a new unit of the growing international network of the organisation’s service to refugees. While JRS Australia sets its own priorities based on local needs and capacities, it calls on the experience, local knowledge and the research and advocacy capacities of the worldwide JRS network.

JRS Australia works with asylum seekers and refugees in Australia by responding to their plight in a manner that is both personal and practical. JRS particularly focuses on urgent and real needs where no one else is working. The aim of the service is to equip asylum seekers and refugees to make decisions and to find solutions to the problems that impact their lives.

Activities of JRS Australia

  • The Shelter Project helps asylum seekers who are unable or not permitted to work to find accommodation. We provide a group of such asylum seekers with housing, financial support, English classes, job search assistance, accompaniment and personal support.
  • We provide support to those who have been granted refugee status to find employment and offer assistance with the transition to independence.
  • We regularly visit Sydney’s Villawood Immigration Detention Centre in a pastoral role. This involves offering pastoral care to both those who are to be deported as well as those awaiting the outcome of their case. In the case of those awaiting deportation, we may link them with JRS networks overseas. We also provide pastoral care to detainees on Christmas Island.
  • We provide research and advocacy into forced displacement in Pacific region in order to advise government and NGOs on policy and program responses in this area.
  • We research the nature and causes of refugee flight and look for better ways of responding.
  • We work with government and other refugee groups to develop fairer asylum processes to ensure asylum seekers receive just and dignified treatment.
  • As well as offering professional support for asylum seekers and refugees, we have the services of a team of volunteers who assist us in our work.
  • We link with JRS International and broker overseas field placement for Australians wishing to work for JRS internationally.
